These pocket-sized pups can easily travel from the dog park to the red carpet, thanks to their petite size. Some famous Chihuahua lovers include Paris Hilton (who has an entire pet mansion on her property for her spoiled pooches), Madonna, Hilary Duff and Britney Spears. But it's not just the blonde starlets who love these tiny dogs from Mexico. Other famous folks who own them include Mickey Rourke, Demi Moore and Paula Abdul.

Super fluffy and an excellent choice for urban living because of their small stature, Pomeranians are another popular pick among the stars. And who could blame them? Pomeranians lend themselves well to the finer things in life, like Japanese haircuts. Famed Pom owners include Megan Fox, Gwen Stefani and former RHOBH star Lisa Vanderpump, who was our real favourite cast member during her time on the show.

Always a top pick for their lovable personalities, athletic nature and affability with children, golden retrievers are another popular choice among celebs (proving that it’s not just small dogs that are beloved in Hollywood and beyond!). Adam Levine, Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas, former RHOBH star Denise Richards, Jimmy Fallon and many more celebs are proud golden retriever owners.

Is there a more fashionable breed than an Italian Greyhound? If there is, don’t tell our favourite famous dog, Tika the Iggy or notorious Greyhound lover Kylie Jenner about them. These miniature hounds have gentle, affectionate personalities and love an accessory, making them a perfect pick for fashionable celebs who love matching their outfits to their dogs’. Other celeb Italian Greyhound lovers include Will Smith and Matt Damon.

Another popular small dog breed among celebrities, teeny tiny Yorkies make for excellent lap dogs. They’re super affectionate towards their owners, giving their celeb dog parents all the love and devotion that stars are used to. Is that why they’re popular among stars like Keke Palmer, former RHOA star Nene Leakes, Jennifer Lawrence and devoted dog dad Simon Cowell?

These short-legged cuties are another popular small dog breed. Their most notable celebrity fan is the Queen of England herself, who famously loves the adorable herding dogs (she's raised over 30 in her life and currently has two corgis by her royal side). Other famous folks who own corgis include Queer Eye’s Antoni Porowski and (another queen) the late Betty White.

Named the most popular dog in 2021 by the American Kennel Club, it’s no surprise that celebrities love these good-natured dogs.

Famous Lab owners include Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Garner, Jennifer Aniston, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
